Another significant change is the creation of a new ‘form of leave’ for children, regarding section 67 of the ‘Immigration Act 2016’. This change now means that children can still remain in the UK as a long-term status, even if they do not qualify for refugee or humanitarian protection leave. However, those that do qualify shall be able to study, access public funding and healthcare as well as work and apply for settlement after five years within the UK.
